In 2012, the Washington Supreme Court adopted the Limited License Legal Technician (LLLT) Rule, making it the first state to authorize non-attorneys who meet certain educational requirements to advise clients on specific areas of law. This concept of non-lawyer consultation is a new way to address the gap in access to legal services, but many lawyers are wary of the change. So what was the response in Washington?

Lawyer 2 Lawyer host Bob Ambrogi interviews Patrick Palace, immediate past-president of the Washington State Bar Association, about how the LLLT licensing and certification works, why they are able to provide cheaper services than lawyers, and collaboration opportunities that have emerged.

Patrick Palace is a plaintiff’s trial lawyer with an emphasis on workers’ compensation, personal injury, civil rights and social security matters. Patrick served as the president of the Washington State Bar Association from 2013 to 2014 and has received both national and regional accolades for his work.
